Abstract

The Arden Syntax for medical logic modules (Arden) was used to test the feasibility of encoding large, complex care plans. The critical portions of an existing paper-based care plan for the management of patients following coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery were encoded in Arden and an X-windows user-interface was developed. The Arden Syntax proved adequate for encoding all of the necessary functions of the care plan. The limitations of the current Arden Syntax and possible additions to Arden are discussed.
